Google: Nexus 10 Is an Experiment to Rescue an Underpowered Tablet Market

Interesting, if damning, commentary from Google suggests that the Nexus 10 is an experiment in resuscitating a tablet market which is overcrowded with expensive and underpowered 10-inch tablets.

Speaking to the New York Times, Google's director of business development for Android, John Lagerling, explained that the 10-inch tablet market is "overpriced and underpowered, and we wanted to see what we could do."

Our initial impressions suggest it might not have quite managed to do a whole lot better than its competition in terms of power, with its dual-core 1.7GHz processor falling a little short over hardcore graphics work. It is, however, great value. Like most experiments, then, it may not have achieved the desired results first time round. [New York Times]
